Autobiographical Painting


This is a painting exercise for a workshop I will be teaching next week in Arizona. The workshop is about how to arrange a composition using quaint subject matter. When I was mid way thru the painting I decided it was really boring. However, I didn't want to put in anything in that wasn't quaint enough. Suddenly I decided to make it an autobiographically painting and put in subject matter that was meaningful to me. This is how it turned out. What is your definition of quaint?

Your painting is quaint, the Petite Auberge is quaint.....

I don't know if I would call it quaint, but the addition of the tea pot and Ferragamo-esque shoes is charming!

I like the little dog on the leash and that you can't see who is holding the leash.

Thanks for a wonderful class last week at Art Unraveled, Barbara!
